Sheepshead are targeted year round. Some of the best Sheepshead fishing can be in February and March on the numerous nearshore wrecks and reefs. The larger females will go to the deeper water during this time. They are typically caught using fiddler crabs as bait, but will hit oysters, clams, and live shrimp as well. The jetties offer excellent opportunities for big fish as well. These wild looking porgies make excellent table fare. Sheepshead are anywhere from a pound up to more than 15 pounds.
